College student dating a teacher
This is one kind of relationship that our society frowns upon much the same way it condemns child abuse or paedophilia.
Sometimes you have the odd case when a student misconstrues the intentions of a loving teacher. In this case, the teacher is not to blame but it is the student who needs counseling.

There is nothing wrong in having a close, friendly, healthy relationship with your teacher. The teacher will risk his reputation and even face legal charges and be prosecuted. Nabokov’s makes for a good story but does not make for a happy life in reality.
Some peers, who are teachers and students by circumstance, can be involved romantically without offending anyone.
